, healthcare.gov. before i talk about the law and its benefits, let me tell you about a visit i made to the emergency room on a friday night recently with one of my boys after he broke his left arm. excellent.s so much of our emergency trauma and specialized care is. what was remarkable to me is not the care that my son got as grateful as i am, but rather the crying of two babies i heard in their emergency room being treated for asthma. dramatic asthma attacks. i cannot know for sure whether those babies were insured or not. if they did have coverage and the access to primary care that comes with such coverage, chances are it would have been far less likely to be getting emergency care for something like asthma on a friday night in the emergency room. parents broke full as -- my heart broke for those parents. they seek care for their suffering child in the emergency room. we are talking about asthma, something increasingly and sadly common, but also fundamentally treatable. dell with and the emergency room, which "the new york times" in great caret reminded us is the single most expe
pains to clarify the president's duty is to implement the law in good faith and to exercise reasonable care with the word take care in doing so. the fact is that scholars on both left and right can' concors broadly worded phase to handle with fidelity to all including indeed the constitution. as a legal and practical matter, the president's phase in of the employer mandate and other provisions as well with the job description so is the program for the childhood arrivals. i'm not going to go into that now but the congressman explained why that's true and in my written statement, we do so also. i have to say one quick word about what i know my good friend and frequent partner michael cannon is going to focus on, and that is his theory and he gets a lot of credit for picking it up and marketing it. his theory that the tax credits and subsidies must be available, that they are on the available to americans who have been living in states that have set up their own exchanges. i can't go into detail on this. in the questioning perhaps i will be able to do that, but if there is a few phrases i

of the health care law. this is an hour 45 minutes. [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] >> good afternoon. i called this meeting to order. as we are all well aware the health care law requires businesses that employ 50 or more full-time or full-time equivalent employees to offer health insurance or pay an employer mandate penalty or a tax. a critical issue is the definition of employee but equally important is the issue of which and how many employees are it should be to to the business. the answer may be simple for one business with a single owner however when an individual shares ownership of multiple entities or when a business has multiple owners the answer is less clear. today we will examine the process of determining whether businesses are considered single or multiple entities under the health care law, which requires business owners to aggregate employees and could subject the business to the obamacare employer mandate. according to the national federation of independent business, 39% of small businesses with 20 or more employees on at least 10% of one or more other bus

to believe that the government is no longer constrained by the laws and they will conclude that neither are they. that is a very dangerous sort of thing where the president to do to wantonly ignore the laws, to try to impose obligation upon people that the legislature did not approve -. >> thank you, chairman. professor lazarus, made a statement about, at least i invert about this being political, i want to assure you that i left a lucrative law practice to come to congress in 2011 because i continually see the eroding of the constitution. is what protects us. so i'm not here for the pomp and circumstance, for the notoriety or to promote my career. i'm here because i'm concerned about the future of my children and the constitution to want to make that perfectly clear. number two, you may become it, and again, i invert that -- i inferred that the intent, intent wasn't an issue or was an issue in part of the affordable care act. and i don't want to get in to the details of that but i find that interesting that you made intent the issue when the speaker of the house at that time, nancy pel

is to interpret the law that this body passed and the law is very clear that there has to be a nexus between the fee and the impact of the development, so i think that to subjecting that somehow we can do anything beyond that is really not an accurate description of what our role is, and i personally think that in the en, it's not a good thing for an appellant to come before a body arguing something that in the end is not within the confines of what the law allows, and i think that creates a sense of false hope and i don't think it's fair to an appellant to go through a process that ultimately doesn't really lend itself to do what is being promised it could do. that's not the reality of what the law says, and if we want to change the law, then let's change the law, but i don't think it's fair to go through this process when we know that the law does not allow us to do what we're claiming it can do. >> unless there's any further discussion, colleagues, supervisor kim has a motion in front of us, madam clerk, call the roll. >> on the motion to approve item 19, table 20, 21, supervisor breed, b

the improvements made to the site while also highlighting the benefits of the law. it's the start of a new campaign being launched by the white house and democrats to get more americans enrolled. the administration plans to hold an event every day until december 23rd, the enrollment deadline for coverage by january 1st. as politico puts it today the fresh push is an attempt to get back to the plan they wanted to pursue. whether or not the at mrgs has turned a corner, that remains to be seen but as of noon, this afternoon, the healthcare.gov twitter account reported more than 380,000 visits to the site today, on top of the 1 million visits to the site reported yesterday. the "washington post" reports the site processed 18,000 enrollments in the 24-hour period, more than double the previous numbers reported. >> we were very pleased to hear the advancements made to rectify the problems with the website as it pertains to -- let's not forget, it is not just about a website but providing affordable care for millions of americans. >> meanwhile, house speaker john boehner would not say if republicans would

this up. this is like arbitration. we'll decide this later. >> the law was signed into law 3 1/2 years ago. the insurance company will estimate how much the government might owe them for subsidies and the government will cut them a check and they will figure it out later when the website is working. how is it going to be gotten back? it's r, fe for fraud and huge mistakes. it's a huge science and it will involve billions of taxpayer dollars. bill: the errors are not fixed and we don't know when they will be fixed. >> when all hell broke loose they started working on the front end of the website, the part the consume sellers see first. but the back end where the actual purchases take place have not yet finished. look at obama's event yesterday. he highlighted the stories of four people. two were young people who benefited from keep your coverage on your parents until you are 26. another den fit from lifetime caps. another who was a doctor who hasn't sick. nun none of them actually purchased affordable coverage on the obamacare website. bill: they need to be even rolled, byron. >> it's just
they passed the law and implemented it, the target of the young people were not signing on. and then later on they did enroll into the health affordable care act. so we believe that type of trend that we saw in massachusetts will be seen throughout the country. >> can i answer yours? okay. you know, so for my own personal situation, i'm in one of the rural areas with very high health insurance. and low -- lower income. our county has about 99,000 as a population with an average household income of middle 40,000s. as i struggle to provide more health insurance and they aggregate the businesses to make it -- you know, if i can stay under that 50, i will. it will be extremely expensive for me. in the meantime, to absorb a 40% to 44% health insurance increase, it would be much easier for me to put my employees out on the exchange. it's a lot cheaper for them to provide that than for me to absorb that additional cost within my small profit margins anyway. so thank you. >> i would just comment that if the additional cost of adding each employee would be approximately $4,000 to provide insurance
workable. i remind my republican colleagues that the affordable care act is the law and has been the law of the land for four years. and it was upheld by the supreme court. as democrats have predicted for months, enrollment in the affordable care act exchanges is picking up speed as we approach the new year. as americans learn more about the benefits of this law, more and more of them are logging on to shop for affordable quality insurance through the state and national exchanges. the rollout of the national affordable care act was rocky, to say the least, when it came out. congress had to make crucial improvements to other landmark programs such as social security and medicare when they were first enacted as well. these big legislative deals can have some wrinkles in them. it doesn't mean social security is bad. it doesn't mean that medicare is bad. it means they're hard to get started, and it's just the same as obamacare. but now i repeat, mr. president, many of the major problems with the health care law have been fixed hundreds of thousands of americans are logging on every day to re
businesses. >> the house judiciary said the president cannot write his own laws. >> from obama care and immigration the administration is picking which laws to enforce. there is no unlaterally waiving or suspending or revising the laws. >> the democrats said the president is doing what the law provides and that is a legal challenge today. >> here is another one. to america's premier catholic university. notre dame using the administration over the law. there is a controversial man date of employers put care in their claims. the judge rowelled that it had no standing since the man date was yet in effect. >> it will kick in on january 1st. >> the greater assault on the obama care on the docket with the judge. the legal challenges that could embroil obama care for years. >> the judges have a lot to say about. that >> we want to know today, how can the president sell obama care to you today? >> send us a tweet@bill hemmer. >> and@alisyn camerota. snu can see it here. >> and they are rolling in already today. >> one, a question for the president, is it disposable? >> people are funny. >>
together. part of that is the practical access to the insurance coverage, which the law, unfortunately, does not guarantee for the small employers. are there planning opportunities? yes. we see small employers trying to use those to avoid compliance with the law? not yet. i think part of the lack of awareness is a little bit of a reaction to the delays that have occurred. believe there have been delays and those delays will continue. for smaller businesses, there is a sentiment that the rules for the larger employers were delayed, which they were until 2015. however, for the smaller businesses they smell many of them on the brunt of the expensive renewals this year. they offer an early renewal option to renew their policy this december and to delay the cost impacts of health reform. invariably they have taken that offer. they have basically kicked the issue down the road for another year. we will hear more about that next fall. it is a matter of the law providing access to coverage with no pre-existing conditions. it is not by any means affordable, even for the small businesses. the sm
to answer in this report in 2001. >> in 1920 prohibition became the law of the land. the sale and manufacture of alcohol that tool of the devil was forbidden in every state. that same year the democrats came to san francisco to nominate cops in roseville and the city provided every amenity for the visitors including a truckload of booze. it was the first look that san francisco was not going to take prohibition seriously. the prohibition was taking it seriously indeed. revenue agents found illegal liquor and to the horror of liquors everywhere wasted the stuff. >> now being destroyed under court order, go to it boys. >> reporter: in san francisco, and other cities the feds smashed into barrels of wine, beer, whisky and gin. sometimes providing a brief bonanza for hard drinkers along the sidewalks. in san francisco, an infamously easy going town, speak easies, bars that provided liquor to anyone who knew the right password or right number of knocks on the door flourished all over the city more or less unmolested. this place no a steak house and once a restaurant was before tha

care law, this time pushing back the deadline for small business exchange. now the president is catching heat for tweaking the law without the approval of congress, even from some folks who voted for him. >> the problem with what the president is doing is that he's not simply posing a danger to the constitutional system. he >> rich, is john on the mark here? >> yes, he is. obama is making unilateral changes to a piece of legislation and the problem is where is the check and balance on that, where are the limits, what's to prevent him from changing the law entirety. i realize it's a little bit of a grey area but obama has gone overboard on this. >> rick, doesn't this bothers i some way. >> this is somethiig that's gone on throughout our modern history. in this case though what troubles me is if you read the affordable care act, this does permit these things to be done by the executive branch. there . >> jonathan turly says it's against the constitution. there have been changes and tweaks done by the president. is this wrong? >> it's wrong. we are the united states of america,
the connecticut law demands that public records be released. these are public records defined by the statute therefore they've got to be released and the fact that the connecticut legislature post sandy hook changed the law and kept off-limits communications between first responders in a situation like this to the extent they were commenting on a homicide. but where the legislature hasn't protected this situation, the law says they've got to be handed over. >> michael, there are seven land line calls from inside the school at the time and they are expected to be released there. a part of what's going on as this community braces for the one-year anniversary on the 14th, the new school superintendent john reed sent a letter to parents in the district as well as staff and it said, i want you to have the opportunity to thirveg about steps, if any you may take to minimize media exposure for you and your family. i have not listened but i suspect it will be an emotional trigger. i remine confident by supporting one another with love and understanding we will continue to move forward as a school sys

, we may never satisfy the law's opponents, i think that's fair to say. some of them are rooting for this law to fail. it's not my opinion, by the way. they say it pretty explicitly. some have already convinced themselves the law has failed regardless of the evident. but i would advice them to check with the people who are here today and the people they represent all across the country whose lives have been changed for the better by the affordable care act. look, i have always said i will work with anybody to implement and improve this law effectively. you got good ideas, bring them to me. let's go. but we're not repealing it as long as i'm president. i want everybody to be clear about that. we will make it work. for all americans. >> and the president asked for help. >> i'm going to need some help in spreading the word. i need you to spread the were about the laws, about the benefits, about its protections, about how folks can sign up. tell your friends, tell your family. do not let the initial problems with the website discourage you because it's working better now, and it's ju

will this manifest itself? the administration claims, this is not a law problem, it is a website problem. as soon as we get this website up and running and everyday we make improvements, people will see the wonderful products we had to offer. they will run to the website, bite product and that will solve itself. that will solve all the problems. >> yeah. that's not the problem p. the problem is the law. they have 5.6 million people who lost their insurance, that they have to sign up in 23 days in order to not have millions without coverage on january 1. that's 240,000 a day for the next 23 days. even if the website worked perfectly, that is almost impossible. next year, 50 million people will lose their employer-based coverage. either dropped entirely or altered beyond recognition. people are mad about 5.5 million now. how will they feel about 50 million next year. obama has lost trust and credibility. if fixing a website will not repair the bond of trust he broke with the american people. >> we will have the other side on that issue coming up. mark, thank you. >> thank you. >> meantime, powerful
